  • Furthermore she will explain how the treatment works, the number of treatments that you will require and will provide you with a price quote
  • The technician will also ask you a series of questions to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and to determine your skin type
  • After your FREE consultation, the technician will call in Dr. Vignjevic
    • He will assess your skin type and whether extractions would be suitable for you
